Ingredients:


For 1 drink:


15ml Rosemary Syrup

40ml Coconut Rum

15ml White Chocolate Liqueur

15ml Lime Juice

20ml Egg White

Ice to shake, Fresh Rosemary to garnish


For the Rosemary Syrup:


100ml Water

100g Sugar

1 tbsp Rosemary Needles, chopped

Method:


1. Begin with the syrup. Add the sugar, water and rosemary to a small pan and dissolve over a low heat. Bring to a simmer then boil 3-5 minutes or until slightly reduced. Strain, discard the rosemary and allow to cool before decanting into a bottle and chilling.

2. When cold, add all the cocktail ingredients to a Boston shaker, finishing with the egg white. Adding it too early can cause the proteins to coagulate in the acid.

3. Shake for 30 seconds then strain through a hawthorn strainer into a glass. Garnish and serve straight away.
